Year 6 went to Saffron Walden Cricket Club on Wednesday to compete in the Newport family kwik cricket tournament. The boys’ event took place in the morning and the team confidently beat Newport, Debden and Wimbish to face Great Chesterford in the final. This was a close match, which the boys won by just one wicket.
The girls played in the afternoon and repeated the boys’ success in their pool, winning all of their matches, again meeting Great Chesterford in the final, which they also won.
All of the children played extremely well, supporting one another and showing great sportsmanship. Their excellent behaviour on and off the pitch was even commented upon by members of staff from another school.
We are very proud of the way they represented Clavering as well as how well they played. Well done and we look forward to going forward to the Uttlesford finals on 12th June.
